A peace offering?

Dear Dingbat,

I guess you know me well enough to know that shoes are the way to my heart. You showed up with two pairs of  shoes to give to me this morning. You said that they hurt your feet and thought I'd like them.
My initial excitement was clouded with skepticism.
Is there something wrong with these shoes?
Are they ugly?
Are they old lady shoes?
I was so paranoid I had to text a picture to a friend and ask for her professional advise.
They passed.

So thank you dingbat. I will try to be nicer to you and tolerate you; however, I will continue to blog about your constant dingbat moments.

Check your checklist

Today I had a conversation with dingbat that went like this:

Me: I don't see Thursday's meeting on the calendar.
Dingbat: Big eyed blank stare... long pause
Me: Oh its not in for the entire year
Dingbat: Big eyed blank stare, rifling though files (for several minutes)
Me: Did you get the schedule?
Dingbat: I don't know
Me: Check your checklist
Dingbat: Oh, I have it highlighted, that must mean I didn't get it
Me: Ok... I will follow up with the creator, maybe you should check your checklist for others you may have missed.
